Windows 7: Monitor Power Off vs Display Off via Power Plan

Monitor Power Off vs Display Off via Power Plan

I prefer to manually power down the monitor rather than rely on the "Turn off the display" setting in Power Plan Settings. Is there a major difference? Good, Bad, Ugly, das macht nichts? Any critical concerns I need be aware of?

-thx

I don't know of any G/B/U. What ever way you choose.

I personally turn power off to my computer and everything plugged into it after a proper shut down.

I appreciate your input Layback Bear. Circumstances require my computer to be running for long periods of time. The monitor is not needed for much of that time.

I have my monitor set to power down after 5 minutes of no activity. If I am to be away for sometime I shut the monitor off.

I do shut my computer down at the end of working, shut off the UPS & turn off the wall switch as well.
